Ben Ledi Navigation Day

Bill was away doing nav' practice with Grant on Saturday as part of his NNAS development and general hill walking regime to 'get out there'.

Ben Ledi, near Callendar, was the chosen location and turned into a good day with plenty of ice about and snow lying above 300m or thereby.   Plenty of opportunities to look at pacing, tick off features, hand-railing and relocation strategies, which Grant is picking up quickly and efficiently.

There are a number of routes to the top of Ben Ledi and Bill and Grant parked at the bridge by the Falls of Leny, striking off path at times to look at contour interpretation.   Bill and Craig cycled here regularly years ago and there are plenty of good tracks about which need to be explored further.

All in, a cold but highly rewarding day; another day for the log book for Grant and more learning points for him to consider and put into practice for next time he is out and about.
